M.B.A. – Health Care Management

This concentration will prepare students for general management positions in a variety of health care agencies, but especially for positions associated with the traditional business functions—such as financial control, human resource management, program marketing, public relations, quality control, customer relations, and budgeting. The conceptual basis of this concentration is the view that modern business practices are increasingly becoming part of the fabric and structure of America’s health care community. Therefore, future leaders in this sector must bring sharpened skills to their careers in the traditional areas of business practice.

The M.B.A. degree requires the completion of 60 credits.
